We have already discussed about MPI (Multidimensional Poverty Index) as the best indicator to measure poverty*, but in terms of well-being there is still gaps that prevent us to get into conclusive results. In addition, economic growth is an incomplete indicator of well-being because it does not value other important aspects like community, security or the quality of our environment.Is that so that we need to search for holistic methods that go beyond and insert sustainability us part of its measures.
The article of Chapple “Finding a sustainable model of economic growth fit for the future” published in the Guardian , explore this points in a very simple and accurate way.
